Holding onto your anger, can be detrimental, not only to your sanity and peace of mind but to your body. Yes, learning about stress, and its affect on the body has been part of my studies in school. With what’s going on in our country right now, I thought it would be a good focus for a quick blogpost.
Your body reacts to ANY anger, fear or stress the same way it would if a tiger was chasing you. It goes into survival mode, and into what’s known as “fight or flight” mode. Your body releases sugar for energy, increasing glucose levels, while raising your blood pressure and breathing. Meanwhile, it shuts down or suppresses your digestive and immune systems, among other things.
